Descriptif
The present study integrated field observations with the satellite remote sensing. The detailed objectives of the study were : 1. To analyze impact of urban development of selected towns of Haryana on surrounding landuse/landcover and agro-ecosystems along a temporal gradient. 2. To analyze various landscapes attributes (patch, matrix, connectivity etc.) to formulate a plan for harmonized urban growth. 3. To analyze impact of land use/ land cover changes on various attributes (cropping patterns, crop diversity, agronomic yields, food production etc.) of surrounding agro-ecosystem of studied urban centres and identify different processes affecting functioning of agro-ecosystems. Through the study of land-use and land-cover changes and their consequences, conclusive statistical information and visualization data was obtained regarding the processes, causes and impacts of the urbanization on agroecosystems in Kurukshetra and Yamunanagar region. The study is significant for the judicious use of natural resources, to assess the regional sustainable development plan so as to protect our living environments.

Thesis Structure
The thesis is comprised of 5 chapters with the present chapter dealing with background of the research topic, significance, and research objectives. Chapter 2 deals with the detailed review of literature explaining the basic concepts on the related issues of the research and previous work on land use/ land cover change, urban sprawl and agriculture system. Chapter 3 provides a description of the study area and detailed methodology needed in order to achieve the research objective. Chapter 4 provides the outcomes of the study with respect to spatio-temporal changes in land use/ land cover change of the study area ; urban sprawl and impact of LULC change on agro-ecosystems of the area followed by interpretation of findings through discussion. Chapter 5 concludes the results of the study by summarizing the land use/ land cover dynamics in study area. The references cited in the study are listed at the end.
